Portland Timbers, Puerto Rico National Team, MLS Super Draft selection - LA Galaxy
Itzik has been a huge asset to our club. Through my 14 year professional career I have come to understand the importance of mental performance. I would not have been able to accomplish the things I have at the levels I have played without a winners mindset. Itzik has a very special way approach in connecting with youth players and getting them to understand concepts that are absolutely critical in their development as players on the field and character off the field. We love having him meet with our club and seeing results from the boys on the field and hearing the positive feedback from parents regarding their actions at home and in school.

Thank you so much for working with Zach. It has been super helpful and very motivating. I already see a huge shift in mentality not just on the field but at home. This is something that has helped build my sons personality, help his soccer form, and educate him, not just in sports but throughout his entire life. I wish I would have had a chance to work with someone like you when I was 13. It would have helped me make some critical decisions in a different way.

Mental Awareness is so important in preparing for the college game. It is at least as critical to performance as any other part of the players game. Itzik has been working with our college guys for the past 3 years and has done a great job breaking down players’ barriers and providing them with tools so that they can play with confidence, consistently.

Since working with Itzik I feel that I have expanded my knowledge about how to be a complete player. He exposes me to a whole different side of the game that I realized anybody who wants to make it to the big leagues and to have a professional career is working on constantly. I have added mental training into my training regiment and now it is a daily thing that I work on. I feel that I have become a better player and a better person since working with Itzik.
I know that I am lucky to start working on this now because this is going to push me to the next level.

Itzik has taught me that to play at the next level or succeed in life you have to be mentally strong and create good habits. To do so you have to develop discipline in everything that you do. I am working hard at that and can see huge improvements.
